Pea Salad with Bacon and Cashews

pea salad

This is my husband’s favorite salad.  It makes a wonderful side dish with any type of grilled entree–steak, chicken, fish.  Add some fresh sliced tomatoes and a platter of sweet boiled corn on the cob and you will have a feast of a summer meal.  The recipe has been around for decades, but lately I have jazzed it up with a drizzle of  Marisolio’s Honey Ginger Balsamic just to be different.  It is a great dish to take to a potluck as well.  You make the basic salad earlier in the day, and transport to your event, adding the bacon and cashews just before serving.

Pea Salad with Bacon and Cashews

10 slices bacon, diced
2 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen peas, thawed
1 c. chopped onion
2 c. sliced celery
2 c. sour cream
Salt and pepper
1 c. salted cashews
Cook bacon until crisp; drain and set aside. Mix peas, onion, celery and sour cream. Season to taste. Refrigerate several hours to blend flavors. Before serving, stir in bacon and cashews.
